With MACNA just a little over a week away, we can feel the excitement in the air as exhibitors and attendees all try to make last minute preparations to attend the Atlantic City show. Attendees are making sure the tanks are gonna be alright on their own for a weekend, the spouses and caretakers are getting instructions and all the top off is being made and prepped. Meanwhile, exhibitors are busy putting together last minute touches to their booths, getting flyers and brochures printed and cursing out suppliers for not having shipped products yet. As we make our own preparations and examine the list of nearly 100 exhibitors, we’re asking ourselves which booths we’ll absolutely have to stop by. Seeing as the whole reefing world and all you exhibitors all read Reef Builders pretty regularly, why don’t you tell us why we should stop by your booth. What can we expect to see? Will you have some amazing livestock? Will you have some new products? Are you gonna have free beer and hula dancers? If you have some hula dancers handing out beer and bagging up great corals that would be even better. Sound off in the comments.
